School Board Investigates Energy Savings Facility Projects
The ESG Management Team proposed four possible scenarios for Energy Savings Facility upgrades at the September 8, School Board meeting. The four preliminary options range in cost from $785,000 to $4,995,00, but all provide the District with energy savings equipment replacement and upgrades which provide cost savings payback, with minimal tax rate impact. The School Board set two special meetings September, 17 (4:00 p.m... and 22 (6:00 p.m...) for further evaluation and possible approval of a project resolution to use an Act 32 revenue limit exemption for energy savings projects. Act 32 allows for an energy efficiency exemption for Districts to upgrade facilities/equipment to improve building energy efficiency.
